I have to get extract a .pst file from our exchange server to give to attorneys. I read this link, and was going to start here but I can't find the location of the .pst files.


Is there an easier way. We don't have the machine with the file on it, or I would just grab it.

Give yourself full permissions on the mailbox, add it to your outlook and export it from there?

You need full permission, add to your outlook and export the whole mailbox to wherever you want.

Else you refer to the step by step which shows \\esp-ho-ex2010a\pst\alan.reid.pst

So open a My computer, browse to \\esp-ho-ex2010a\pst
and you should see the file.
